About This Project

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a medical condition that afflicts nearly 70 million American adults. This project will investigate the effect of hypertension and inflammation on memory by testing with the Context Discrimination Task. By gaining insight into how the brain, and specifically the hippocampus, is affected by high blood pressure and inflammation, future studies may develop drugs and treatments to mitigate neurological disorders.
